One of the most famous characters in the Soul Calibur fighting video games. Magical whip-sword, martial arts, alchemy.

So here’s a “what I wish I knew when I started” space guide.
Humble Bundle is now offering a Dynamite Comics bundle of digital comics, starting at $1. It has many, many of the geeky things. Check the post for a partial list of stuff (because listing everything that’s in the bundle was too long).
This continues our huge chronological series about Carol Danvers (aka Captain Marvel, aka Ms. Marvel). This covers her early Warbird career, from 1998 to 2000.

An unreasonably thorough explanation about the Black Widow (Natalia Romanova) from the origins to the end of the Great Patriotic War. Buckle up, it’s something of a ride.
As of January of 2019, this profile has received yet more polishing, and was cleft due to length.
Part the second of our beautiful and deadly character profile for Natalia Romanova.
This one covers 1946-1965, but in practice it mostly corresponds to her earliest Marvel appearances as a femme fatale after Tony Stark’s industrial assets. Or at least, what he insists are industrial assets.

The second half of our full profile for Maric Theirin, the rightful King of Ferelden, as he appears in Dragon Age prequel novel The Stolen Throne, by David Gaider.

As of December of 2018, this profile was revised and expanded and corrected. Y’know, our usual overhauling work. So much work.
